IB Musical Links Investigation

Recommended Posts

lmao

I'm comparing Bamboleo (Gipsy Kings) and Hej Sarna (Kapela Biesada)

It's not too bad... for starters they're both written in DMaj so I already have that

And they're both folkloric musics so in the end while they're both very different they have lots in common

I'm comparing Dubstep and didjeridoo music..... It's 3:30am the day of and I'm realizing the difficulty of my options.

what songs ? I have a friend using Imogen Heap's Hide & Seek as her first song (non remixed, acapella)

Who all is in an IB music class? If so, what's your IA topic?

I'm comparing Jonathan Larson's RENT: The Musical and Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme. It's proven to be very challenging so far.

I did my topic on Drum and Bass vs Minimalism. I used Pendulum's Girl In The Fire and compared it to Steve Reich's Six Pianos.

No score was available for the Pendulum piece so I used FL studio to export sheet music PDFs and paste them into my project. My teacher was very impressed with it as I chose a very modern piece and genre overall to compare minimalism with. I'll admit I didn't sleep the night before it was due though. I spent 9 hours on it the night before the due date and probably a cumulative of about 14 hours on it total. It was a really good effort and I was proud of the result. I ended at about 1700 words.

That sounds really cool! Any chance I could read it?

I've never heard of students using such modern tunes, and DnB is definitely an interesting genre

I've got a friend who compared and contrasted Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin to one of Beethoven's symphonies. It was an interesting project, to say the least.
